Back in December 2011 we wrote a short article about the holiday season and the returning diaspora, with a reminder to them that one term in the USA does not make them foreigners, and that Africa is still ‘home sweet home’
The article rapidly became our “Muliro Gardens” with over 10% of overnight Google searches specifically honing in on our “Summer Bunnies”- nearly all of the searches came from the USA.
We asked ourselves why?
After fantasizing about being terribly popular, we checked out the analytics…and sure enough, we discover that our friendly, furry, summer bunnies are not only an R. Kelly song but also a euphemism for sexy black women….(from the Urban Dictionary)
“A term used for a very attractive and sexy black female. Especially if she has a pretty face, is young, and dresses to accentuate her hot body e.g. small flat waist, plump butt, perky breasts. Summer Bunny is opposite of snow bunny which is a term coined for a similarly sexy white woman.”
Guy 1: Dayum homes, that summer bunny is rockin’ them daisies.
Guy 2: Man you trippin. I tried that last week; she ain’t givin it up!
Lyrics from R Kelly’s song Summer Bunnies (1994):
“Girl, you know you knock me out
You’re a real girl with your looks now baby
Girl you know you knock me out
Summer bunnies drive me crazy…”
